It is well known that the overall population of the United States is aging. “Baby Boomers” (1946 - 1964) alone make up 20% of the nation’s population followed by 22% of “Generation X” (1965 - 1981). These population segments make a disability benefits practice a profitable practice area now and for years to come.

41% of employers offer disability insurance coverage, almost all of which is governed under the Employee Retirement Income Security Act of 1974 (ERISA). This is a broadly encompassing act which governs nearly all employee benefits (disability, life, pension, etc.) in this nation. It is a based on a reticulated statutory scheme which is difficult to comprehend without routine practice in the area. Usually, it takes several years for a practitioner to become competent in this field - UNTIL NOW.

Most importantly, the contingency fees earned from these cases can include past, present, and future benefits as a result of continuing representation. The future benefits create “annuities” which help to provide a dependable monthly income stream for years to come. When you add in flat fees and settlements earned, the overall compensation from this practice is outstanding.

Even better is the very low cost of running an ERISA-based disability practice. Practitioners with small caseloads do not require offices or assistants. Whereas, a busier practice can be managed with a single assistant. Therefore, profit margins of 60% or more are commonplace which is unheard of in most law practices.

Given the difficulty of this particular law practice, there is little competition for these cases in most jurisdictions. This gives you a huge strategic advantage over law practices in terms of marketing and case acquisition.
